Triple P Positive Parenting Program

Our research team is conducting the program evaluation for a large-scale implementation of Triple P, an evidence-based parenting program used in more than 25 countries. Over the course of three years, 300+ providers will be trained to deliver Triple P to 20,000 parents in Raleigh NC. All 5 levels of Triple P are being implemented in this project. Level 1, the Stay Positive campaign, is offered in conjunction with the NC Triple P Learning Collaborative. In our role as the evaluation team, we are working closely with the leadership team and providers to gather and analyze data related to the implementation process. An implementation science framework is being used to disseminate Triple P and to plan and conduct the evaluation. This project is funded by the John Rex Endowment through a grant awarded to the Wake County Public School System.

Our research team is conducting the program evaluation for a project that will embed behavioral health into a local pediatric practice that serves very high-needs children. WakeMed Physician Practices Pediatrics is a hospital based clinic that serves a predominantly (95%) Medicaid population. 50% of patients speak Spanish and they serve many immigrants and refugees from around the world. The purpose of the Project is to increase capacity of this practice to promote the positive mental health of children birth through 5th grade and their families by implementing a Family Centered Medical Home to help address key priorities of the Community Health Needs Assessment: poverty and unemployment, health care access and utilization, mental health, and substance use. This will be accomplished through replication of NC Project LAUNCH’s Family Centered Medical Home (FCMH) model. Specifically, two behavioral health experts are co-located in the pediatric practice to deliver a variety of support services, including parenting support (primarily Triple P) and other services to address social determinants of health. Our research team planned and will conduct the program evaluation of LAUNCH. This project is funded by the John Rex Endowment through a grant awarded to WakeMed Hospital.
